You all know how much I love my snacks – torture to give them up. Won’t be doing anything that foolish again!

Haley and Trevor love snacks, too. What kid doesn’t? It’s a bit of a running joke that at almost the same time every day, the kids come tearing into the kitchen asking, “Is it snack time?” Paul says he sets his watch by it. 

Even though they like fruits and even a lot veggies, I still struggle with what to give them every day – finding that balance between healthy and also fun and inviting. Something different, so nothing becomes too predictable that they grow tired of it.

One of my little tricks is to combine something healthy, with something dessert-like. My Pie Chips with Fruit Salsa, Caramel Apple Grapes, White Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries, and Chocolate Chickpea Cookies are all favorites that are requested time and time again.

Another thing they constantly ask beg for is juice boxes. Who would ever think that a juice box would be a treat?! I suppose since most of them are loaded with HFCS and other additives. No wonder they like them! And no wonder I rarely have them in the house. But that’s about to change.

Capri Sun makes juice pouches and now they have a brand new kind: Capri Sun SuperV.

They contain a good source of fiber (10% of the daily recommended allowance), one combined serving of fruits and veggies (75% from fruit juice, 25% from vegetable juice), no artificial colors, flavor, or preservatives, and fortified with Vitamins A, C, and E.

The 6-ounce pouches come in three different “kid-cool” flavors: fruit punch, berry, and apple. And they are a very welcome addition to our refrigerator.

With school starting next week for us, these will find a happy place in my kids’ lunch boxes.

The proof is in the pudding, my friends. Watch Haley’s and Trevor’s reaction as they taste them for the first time.

If you’re a parent with young children who finds it difficult to get your kids to eat their fruits and veggies, try this product. They taste so good, they will never know it’s nutritious!

Definitely go for fruit snacks and juice with veggies mixed in! Plus I add veggies to meals like spaghetti sauce and any slow cooker meals that I can!

My son knows that every snack or meal includes a fruit or veggie. He likes both, so I’m lucky that it is easy, but I find that he wants what I’m eating, so I make sure to eaty my fruits and veggies! He also likes to dip – so I make sure to have yogurt for fruit and ranch of some kind for veggies.

Fresh veggies and fruits from nana and papa’s garden – my kid’s love anything they grow! This time of year it is easy, but winter it gets a little harder!

I incorporate veggies and fruit via smoothies, putting peanut butter on apples and celery, prepare them in a way they like and just be a roll model and eat these foods with them to show they are good for them.

I don’t have kids, but my parents treated fruit as “dessert” so I looked at it as my daily treats – and I still love it!
